How to Make A Cookie Lollipop Cake
Be it for New Years Eve, July Fourth, or just a fun party dessert, a Star Lollipop cake is sure to please. Adding lollipops to your cake gives it added dimension, and gives party-goers the options of delicious sugar cookies or delectable cake.
You can adapt this cake for any theme (hearts for valentines day, numbers for a birthday cake, animals, flowers) and can use whatever flavor cookie or cake you'd like.
Basic things you'll need to make this cake:
- Cake mix or recipe
- Cookie mix or recipe
- Sprinkles or other decorations
- Candy melts (you can purchase these at arts and crafts stores, like AC Moore or Michael's, or order them online from Amazon)
- Lollipop sticks
STEP 1: Make the Cookies
Recipes for sugar cookies about, but I suggest the sugar cookie and frosting recipe from the Butterfly Garden Cake: Step-by-Step Directions hub (see Step 2 of that hub). Use a star shaped cookie cutter to cut the cookies into stars.
STEP 2: Use Candy Melts to "Glue" the Cookies to the Lollipop Sticks
Candy melts can be purchased at arts and crafts stores like Michaels or AC Moore or online. To melt the candy melts, I recommend using the double boiler technique (or as I know it, the metal bowl on top of a pan of simmering water). The instructions on the package say that you can use a microwave, but I have found this to produce inconsistent quality. One melted, spoon a spoonful onto the backside of the cookie and the attach the lollipop stick.
STEP 3: Frost and Decorate the Cookies
Once the candy melts have hardened (a few minutes), decorate the cookies!
